Why is it when a lib discovers a freshman year chemistry experiment it is hyped as the discovery of the century?

It seems to me that you could use some highly reflective material developed by people smarter than me to push water from a liquid to a global warming gas and then just pipe it into a drinking well when it condenses.

The salt could be used for McDonald’s fries.

If there is a coast line or a source of gravity and water, you could use that energy to generate the power necessary to run the entire thing.

You might even be able to grow algae while you are at it.

Am I stupid or is this a simple process?

I think you're giving the discovery too much credit. Middle School seems more likely to me. The article uses the word "could" 19 times. A REAL scientific article would use the word "did". The article also talks of electricity only using the word "volt". The critical word is "power". Voltage is irrelevant, if it takes too much power to run the operation.

The concept is simple, the execution is not. Consider the volume of water involved.
